LC Men’s Soccer End Regular Season With 2 Wins

Friday the Lynx played their last home game of the season against East Central College out Union Mo.  ECC is an outstanding team who will compete to win their win region tournament starting next week so we thought it would it be good test for us as we approach our region tournament starting next weekend.   Both teams had chances in the first half but it came out to be stalemate with a score of 0-0 at half time.   Lincoln controlled the ball most of the second half but in the 78th minute a long ball was misjudged by a Lincoln Defender and an ECC player was on a breakaway and chipped an out-coming Lincoln Goalie.  Lincoln would not let this change their momentum and continued to press towards ECC’s goal.   In the 82nd minute the Lynx were able to get on the board when Jose Barralaga dribbled by two players on the corner of the box and bent a ball around the goalkeeper.

Despite outshooting Northwest Tech, Lincoln was not able to find the back of the net.   They came into the game very prepared to play us.  They pressed hard, moved the ball well, and were very physical.
